“This is another attempt at me trying to find low fat and low calories 'treats' that also pack a bit of flavor. I am a pickles freak so I would pretty much be happy with any cucumber and vinegar combo but I especially like these when I want a more delicate flavor. They are good as a side with dishes like salmon or I even sometimes just put a few on a sandwich when I want some zest without any fat. I make this with Splenda because I really don't want the sugar as I am counting fat and calories.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the cucumber into really thin slices. I use my food processor to do this and it just takes a few seconds.
  2. In a bowl combine the white vinegar, Splenda, garlic and dill and just stir until the Splenda is dissolved.
  3. Pour wet mixture over the cucumber slices and stir so that the mixture has coated all of the slices.
  4. You can eat right away but they are much better if you put them in an air tight container and chill them in the fridge for a few hours (I do them overnight).
